This is the twelfth of a series of statistical siaimraries on vegetable crops in Florida. 
Through the joint efforts of the Florida Crop and Livestock Reporting Office of the Agricultiiral 
>krketing Service, U. S. Department of Agriculture and the Department of Agricultxaral Economics, 
Agricultural Experiment Stations, University of Florida, data are presented on the acreage, pro- 
duction, and value of 17 vegetable crops v/ith additiorel data on production and hairvesting costs 
for certain crops in specific areas. 

The purpose of this publication is to present in summary form the more important and basic 
information that grov/ers are likely to need in planning and analyzing their individual operations 
with respect to production and marketing problems. Complete historical data serve as a benchmark 
for plotting a future course. Their greatest value comes vrith an understanding of the past and 
an alertness for discerning the future. The Crop Reporting Service, also, issues monthly reports 
on the acreage and potential production of vegetable crops by seasons (fall, v;inter, spring, and 
summer). This timely periodic inforira-tion v/hen properly used should encourage judicious planting 
and more orderly marketing p-Ograms. The ready availability of facts, both current and historic, 
should exert a much needed stabilizing influence in an industry that is very sensitive to exagger- 
ations and unfoiinded rumors. 

V/ith the exception of the shipment information, the data contained herein are estimates and 
are based on reports by, and interviev;s with, grov/ers, shippers, marketing associations and organ- 
izations, seedsmen, railroad representatives > canners and other processors. We gratefully acknowl- 
edge oTor indebtedness to each person and organization contributing to the development of these 
data. 

Ue further acknowledge the assistance extended by such agencies as the Agricultural Extension 
Service through its courity agricultural agents, the Federal-State Inspection and >krket News 
Services, the Florida State Iferketing Bureau, the Florida State Iferketing Board, the Agricultiiral 
Stabilization and Conservation Committee, the State Plant Board and other vjell informed sovirces. 

Ifuch credit is due to oxix entire clerical personnel for the painstaking v7ork they have done 
in preparing this booklet for publication. Arlene Kruse and Joyce Cooper handled most of the 
assembling of data and the cutting of stencils. 



UNITS FC5R VEGETABLE ESTIMATES CEAITGSD ' , 

Beginning with this annual sumirary, yield and production estimates are being changed from a 
container or volume basis to a weight basis. The unit used for fresh vegetables and melons is the 
hxindredweight and that for strawberries is pounds. The reasons for Changing from the heterogene- . 
ous xinits formerly used to a uniform basis include: (l) absence of uniformity in containers used 
for some vegetables, such as lettuce and tomatoes, making it impossible to select a unit v/hich 
can be understood in all producing sections; (2) changes in packing practices and varieties v/hich 
have resulted in weight of individvsal containers so that the accuracy of data on a crate or bushel 
basis has been affected; (3) evidence that measurement of production in terms of v;eight is becoming 
more general. 

In the process of changing over in this volxime, the hundredweight is used only in the State 
summaries and even there the comparable yield in the standard unit is shovm in parenthesis. For 
those wishing to convert from the hundredweight \init to the popular or standard xinit used in the 
past, conversion factors are given under the "All Seasons" State summary table of each commodity. 
Yield and production by counties and areas is still shovm in standard vinits, as in the past, ex- 
cept for Irish potatoes which is carried solely in hundredvjeight. 



INDEX 



"^ach crop generally carries the following sequence of data by season: Name of crop - Season: 
Acres for harvest by coxinties: Acreage, production and value - State suinirary; .'\creage and produc- 
tion by counties and areas, 1955-56; Shipping data; Per acre costs and returns. Crops that har- 
vest in more than one season are then combined in one total grouping classified as "All" and plac- 
ed before the brealcdovm by seasonal groupings. Yellov; pages are placed irainly as dividers between 
crops with per acre cost and returns on or adjacent thereto.

DEPmiTIONS Am EXPLANATIONS 

SEASONAL GROUPINGS - In order that competitive production vrithin the State of Florida and the 
United States may be classified on a National basis under reasonably uniform groups, vre have 
established a National pattern v/hich is based on the most active harvesting periods. These major 
groups are V/INTIR, SPRING, SUMHE, and FALL. The WINTER group includes the months of January, 
February, and ^^rch; SPRING includes April, i'a.y, and June; SUI-IIER includes July, August, and 
September (Florida carries no official summer commercial crops); and FALL includes October, Novem- 
ber, and December. These periods are not rigidly fixed and the harvesting period for a particular 
grouping may extend into the preceding or f ollovjing group. However, in arranging our data v/e have 
followed these groupings in so far as it is practical. For example, it has been considered practi- 
cal to carry cabbage, caulif loi^/er , escarole, lettuce, and strav/berries as one season crops, desig- 
nating them VJINTER since the volume production is harvested generally during Janxaary, February, 
and I^rch. Since some systematic order of grouping is necessary it is deemed best for all concern- 
ed to handle our classifications on a National basis even though they may not always agree with 
some local designations novj in use. 

PLANTliJJ ACREAGE - The definition for planted acreage is based on a "loss of crop" concept. Esti- 
mates of planted acres for any seasonal grouping consist of acres for harvest (see next pairagraph) 
during that particular seasonal group plus any acreage planted for harvest during the season, but 
which vas lost or destroyed and did not produce a crop in the season under consideration. If the 
acreage is lostand not replanted it is counted as planted . If it is lost but replanted for har- 
vest in the same season as the original acreage would have been harvested, the acreage replanted 
is not considered as additional acreage planted. Hoxjever, if the acreage lost is replanted for 
harvest in a later season, it is considered as planted for both seasons and as acres for harvest 
only for the latter season. 

ACRES FOR HARVEST - This is considered as being all acreage from v/hich a crop could have been har- 
vested bad economic condition:, (prices, available labor, etc.) warranted the harvest. It includes 
mature acreage on v.'hich the harvest was postponed or delayed too long due to economic reasons and 
the production lost thereby. Acreage v/hich produces such low yields or poor quality that the crop 
is not worth picking at any reasonable price is considered as crop failure and is not included in 
the acreage for harvest. Unharvested acreage which produces yields v;hich would be harvested at 
reasonable prices is included in acreage for harvest. 



YIELD - Yield refers to total production of merchantable q\iality produced on an acre "basis and 
may include some unbarvested production left in fields for economic reasons. 



PRODUCT ION - Total production represents the yield times (X) the acres -for harvest . Production of 
value is that part of the production which was harvested and sold or utilized and does not include 
economic ahandonment. 



ECONOMIC ABAIEOI'IMEI'-TT - This category, includes mature production not harvested hecause of economic 
factors, such as lov: prices, shortage of lahor, etc. Such loss of production includes quantities 
left in fields partially harvested as well as production on acreage abandoned for economic 
reasons. In the production tables in this book economic abandonment is the difference between the 
total production and the production of value. 

Acreage abandoned at any stage of growth before matiirity v:ill be considered as loss of acre- 
age or crop fggl'^^e rather than economic abandonment of production. • • 



AVERAGE PRICE - All prices used in this report are per hundredweight on an F.O.B. basis or its 
equivalent, less selling charges. 



TOTAL VAUJE - The total value is the average price per h\andredweight times (X) the production of 
value. 



CAIMED OH PROCESSED ACREAGE AMD PRODUCTION - The acreage of vegetables"in Florida planted solely 
for canning and other processing- purposes during the period covered by this publication has been 
confined principally to cucumbers for pickles. The acreages of beans and tomatoes, the principal 
crops processed, are planted primarily for fresh market, but each year substantial quantities axe 
canned or frozen. . ■ -\ ' . 

In order to show the utilization of the production from the acreage brought to harvest, three 
columns on production are used in the State Summaries. The first shovjs the total production, the 
second sho'.vs the production sold for fresh irarket consumption; and the third shcv;s the production 
sold for processing (either canned or frozen). Production abandoned for economic reasons is the 
total production minus the sum of the production for fresh market and processing. 

Those desiring to know the equivalent acreage utilized for processing should divide the niimbsr 
of hundredweight processed by the average yield then generally round to the nearest hundred. The 
prices given for processed beans and tomatoes are based on a per ton price and reduced to a per 
hundredweight price (rounded to the nearest v;hole cent). 



COSTS Aim RETURIIS PER ACRE IN SELECTED AREAS IN FLORIDA - This feature is contributed by the 
"Economics Department of Florida Agricultural Experiment Stations. These tables represent the 
s\imiiarization of grov;er records or estimates of costs and returns per acre from several vegetable, 
crops in the major producing areas of Florida for the 1955-56 season. In so far as possible, 
grov;ing and harvesting costs have been separated and labor items excluded from costs of materials. 



MIXED CAR MOVE?^TT - Total shipments of produce in mixed cars are shovm -by months on Page 86. 
These data include the equivalent cars shovm in cur regular shipment data under each specific crop 
carried in this publication.
